Striker’s representatives met with Serie A giants in Madrid on Wednesday.
Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain has reportedly agreed personal terms with Juventus, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Argentinian striker has been linked with a move away from the Spanish capital this summer, with Arsenal rumoured to be heavily interested in acquiring his services.
However, officials from Juventus flew out to Madrid on Wednesday according to the pink paper and agreed on personal terms with the player following discussions with both his father and brother.
They have yet to clinch a deal with the club, with Madrid likely to put any transfer dealings on hold until they have appointed a new manager following Jose Mourinho’s departure. Furthermore, they will also potentially await the results of their presidential election which is set to take place in the forthcoming weeks.
While it appears as though the 25-year-old marksman is keen for a switch to Turin, Higuain is said to have agreed a four-year deal worth €4.5m a season, with his salary potentially rising depending on bonus clauses.
Madrid are rumoured to have asked for Bianconeri midfielder Arturo Vidal as part of the deal, but Juve have no plans to sell the Chilean, who is a vital part of their three-man midfield.
Antonio Conte’s side have been criticised in the past for not having a high-scoring striker in their squad, but along with Fernando Llorente’s arrival this summer, it appears they have set their sights on Higuain filling that role.
It will now be up to the two clubs to reach an agreement over the price, which may yet give Arsenal hope of landing their target.
